The Card of the Day: The World
The World represents the successful completion of challenges, and the ability to remake your world. The old has been completed, and loose ends are being tied up. "Now" is the time of fresh new beginnings and empowerment. Have fun creating the world you want to live in! The magic of all possibilities are open to you now.
What sort of world have you been creating for yourself? Have you finished a major life phase, or are you preparing to? Are you seeing the new possibilities available to you?
The World is the final card of the Major Arcana. The woman on the World card has faced all the trials and tests of the previous cards, and has achieved enlightenment. As a result she has been given not just one wand (like the Magician at the beginning of the Major Arcana), but two. This symbolizes total empowerment, perspective, and wisdom. She is no longer afraid of the future because she sees herself in the context of the Universal. She is past fear of death. She is in tune with her eternal self and her spirit's authentic purpose. She is forever. She knows who she is. A divine spirit, in fleeting human form, who has an important mission: to heal the world by with her own unique light, abilities, and talents.
The World reminds us that we can create miraculous changes in our environment if we approach it from a place of true power. This means aligning with the "big picture" perspective, embodied by the woman on the card. It also means embracing your soul's authentic path, instead of repressing it. Only by loving your whole journey, with all its heartaches, setbacks, and disappointments, will you be able to see the whole picture. You'll know if you are embracing your authentic self because life will stop feeling like a tense, fearful, struggle, constantly needing to be controlled. Approach the world with your light, and all that you touch will be golden.
Today look at your total journey. How did you even get here? What a miracle that you still exist after all of that! You still exist because you are divine and eternal. No fear can touch you when you remember that. A new day waits for you to recognize all of its possibilities.
Remember, you exist for an important purpose. Get out into the world and be it.
